  1. Kelly I discovered your website today. I am looking forward to trying your cookie recipes and Asian takeout recipes first. I am interested to know what mandolin, standup mixer, cookie pans, and stand-alone cooktop you like. Thank you! So glad to find your recipes.

    1. Thanks so much, Phyllis! Love the OXO mandoline, the KitchenAid Stand Mixer, Gold Touch baking sheets and Viking or Wolf ranges :)

  2. Going to try your zucchini fritters and watched the video to find out exactly how I am going to grate the zucchini’s. Thank you for your informative blog, and oh so many wonderful recipes. Yup I am new to Pinterest, so I am just a little bit excited, you know? I already started on the soft pretzels, and even tried the deep fried zucchini rounds. Really goooood!

  3. Good video! Just want to mention that it’s best to use the guard that comes with a mandolin. I know too many people who have seriously sliced their skin when they didn’t have the guard between their hand and the mandolin. Ouch!

  4. We grow large and wonderful zucchini in our garden every summer. I have never made noodles but I will this summer. I have about 100 recipes for zucchini and now I have 101 recipes. My husband loves shrimp and noodles so I will be making this new recipe before long. Thank You.

  5. Great recipes. I grow a lot of zucchini and was wondering if you have ever dehydrated any. I would love to be able to save noodles of zucchini for winter storage. Any thoughts?

    1. Yes you can dry and save zucchini noodles. This is my last try at getting this info to you. I’m not getting my reply to register for some reason. Anyway, dry the noodles at 200 degrees in the oven on a cookie sheet for 30-40 minutes and store in zip lock bags. Reconstitute by soaking in water (doesn’t need to be boiling) OR adding to your spaghetti sauce to reconstitute. You can also use a dehydrator if you already have one. Just put the zucchini noodles on the trays and follow the instructions for your device. Reconstitute in water or spaghetti sauce for about 10 minutes. Use younger, smaller in diameter zucchini for best results, they have less water.

  6. Thanks so much for this tutorial!!! I am on a clean eating plan right now and am not eating grains so zucchini noodles are on the menu. I wondered if I should bite the bullet and buy a spiralizer, but I didn’t want to because I have waaaaayyy too many kitchen gadgets already and no extra storage space. I have a mandoline though and can use that!! No new gadgets needed:)

  7. Hey Kelly,
    I just signed in to ur website. It’s Awesome!.., the easy recipes, and tips….I can’t wait to get started on some of these ideas…Thank-You

  8. Thanks Kelly – love the ideas on easy zucchini noodles – will try tonight with my pasta sauce!

    1. Hi Beth! You can use the guard on the mandoline, or just not slice the remainder of the zucchini (once it gets too small to cut).
